LFS just got in Showa Koi Swordtails!
 
I was psyched as I had been searching all over the internet to buy them, and had settled on aquabid and paying a high shipping price. I broke my tank heater this morning, so I went to my LFS to get a new one, and low and behold, he had an entire tank of Koi Swords! I got two females and one male, for 10 dollars. Made my day! I'm going to try and get some decent pics tonight. I'm hoping they eventually give birth to more!

Tried getting a few photos, but they're tough to get good ones!

Koi swordtails are great fish two breed as with other swordtails. But there is something about koi swords i just like

Me too! I love how the Kois look! Actually I just love Swordtails in general. I think my tank is officially completely stocked now. I have six Cory cats, and six red eyed Swords, adn now 3 Koi Swords. It's a 29 gallon, so I figure it's about as many fish as it can handle. Now I want a bigger a tank!
